As I mentioned before this is what happens: OS X uses zsh as /bin/sh (not=20 sure if this is relevant). In a simple test script the above line gives the = expected result. However, in the context of gpg's configure script it=20 results in two lines! The 'cd' command isn't silent but returns the new=20 current directory. The following 'pwd' adds another line. The behavior is=20 similar to that of bash if the variable CDPATH is set. However, this is not = bash and CDPATH is explicitly unset. So I really don't know why this=20 happens. I'd guess that it's some "feature" of zsh, but what do I know?

I am perfectly aware of that ;-) It's just a hack to make it work.
